because i know

hunk and lance friendship hcs
  • Hunk and Lance knew each other before the Garrison and have been bffs since childhood
  • Hunk and Lance didn’t meet in the same preschool nor did they ever go to the same school (until the garrison) but met each other in a nearby playground where they continued to meet up for the next 8-11 years of their life, they usually let off steam about the shit that goes down in their schools.
  • “Like, if you’re going to steal something from the mall -” “Don’t wear your uniform?” “EXACTLY. God, that guy was so stupid.” “Agreed.”
  • “Then… then he KICKED the guy’s nose!!! He was bleeding, Lance! He needed to be taken to the hospital!!” “Oh my God, and then what?” “A girl was crying the whole entire time and -” the stories they share go on and on.
  • Lance’s mom and Hunk’s mom are interested in the same things so their sons r bffs and so r they and their moms drag them off sometimes to do grocery shopping but Hunk and Lance are aways ‘can’t we just stay at hoooommmmeeee?’ ‘no you’re going to help me and hunk’s mom buy groceries for our party’ ‘what party????’ ‘a joint family party!!!!’ ‘??????? !!!! A JOINT FAMILY PARTY ????’
  • Hunk’s family and Lance’s family are really close buds now
  • It’s almost surreal how much the two families are alike to interests???
  • Hunk and Lance meet up after graduating middle school and decide to finally enrol in the same school. Both of them couldn’t have been anymore excited and happy.
  • Hunk is Lance’s only tether to Earth because Hunk is childhood and playground days, fighting off bullies and staying up at night under covers and pillow forts, charting stars while laying on muddy grass after rain, stealing cookies when their mothers aren’t looking, and making stupid jokes together as the sun went down – all of their world, quiet and soft and sound.
  • Lance loves Hunk and Hunk loves Lance. They’re best friends, because water breathes life on Earth and what is water without it’s Earth?

anonymous asked:

dear god i am so sick of girls freaking about ghostbusters the only reason you like the movie is because all the characters are women so shut up already

hello there and let me tell you a thing

The answer to your question is yes, we are absolutely freaking about the fact that all the main protagonists of this movie are women. We are allowed. We’re allowed because I saw two movies this weekend and sat through a combined 45 minutes of trailers. I’m not sure how many that is, I lost count after 12. There was one movie- Suicide Squad- with female protagonists. One. Every other movie trailer featured a male protagonist (one had SEVEN!) with either no female characters or a female secondary character whose purpose in the movie is to advance the male protagonist’s plot and probably to give him a prize at the end for doing a Good Job (the prize is her body).

Guess how many movies had a female lead character. I’ll give you a hint:

In 45 minutes of trailer watching- over a dozen trailers- there was not one movie advertised with even ONE female lead. NOT ONE. NOT A SINGLE MOVIE. IS COMING OUT. IN THE NEXT YEAR. WITH A FEMALE LEAD. NOT. EVEN. ONE.* There sure as hell isn’t another movie with FOUR female protagonists and one male secondary character. 

So yes, yes we are excited. Yes, we are screaming, we are freaking out, we are crying tears of joy, because for ONE GODDAMN SECOND we are being validated by the entertainment we are paying for. You can literally have every single other movie that is coming out in the next year and a half, so please shut your mouth and back off so we can enjoy our moment without whiny spoiled entitled children getting upset because only 99% of the content produced by Hollywood this year is for you instead of the usual 100%.

Oh, and Ghostbusters is a really good movie. So suck it.

*you can make the case for Rogue One but that trailer didn’t play and also count for me how many men are going to be surrounding the leading lady and get back to me

i wanna haaaaang

Thank you!

I know it sounds cheesy and syrupy but thank you everyone. 

I don’t want Splatoon to end but I wanted to thank you. Since the beginning of this blog, I’ve met and talked to wonderful people but before that, I never imagined it was possible. 

It’s been many years since I’m on Tumblr and it was the first time I’ve been through such beautiful thing. Being in the cool community, roleplaying, and noticing that some people out there like what I’m doing. 

I know I’m nothing in this world, but I never imagined a game could do something like that. 

I’m not going anywhere ; it was maybe the last Splatfest but I love my blog, my characters and the Splatoon universe and what we’re doing for it too much. 

But again, thank you. 

Ignore this if you don’t live in Canada or the US!!

The Sale Ends on July 31!

I didn’t know Homer was not the only source about greek mythology! I FEEL SO ENLIGHTENED!! im totally gonna do some “serious research” because i have never done that before.

I’m currently reading K.J. Parker’s Savages, which I love to pieces. I’m about halfway through, and I’ve actually used the highlight function on my kindle for the first time. 

It’s practically made for me. It has dialogue like (while talking about forging an “ancient prophecy”): “Like, whoever wrote this knew the proper use of the pluperfect subjunctive. Modern Mezantines always get it wrong.” How could I not love grammar jokes?

His characters are all kind of the same person, but it’s a person I love (I have called all of his terrible people main characters “my baby”), and they relate to each other in ways I love – it’s 400 pages of hypercompetent people plotting against each other and exchanging snarky dialogue that’s actually clever. I really enjoy when everyone’s good at what they do and when they have clever plans where everything slots into place with a click – which is sort of what the plot of the book is doing. There are multiple strands, which I often really dislike, but you can see the strands crisscross and braid, because Parker is really good at plotting, honestly.   

ALSO you don’t have to be into Roman/Byzantine/Late Antique history to appreciate it, but it’s even better if you are – there’s a scene where one of the groups of the titular savages, who have been hired by the Empire to fight their battles, plans to get the Empire to give them land

It’s the kind of low-magic, high worldbuilding fantasy I love. 

So I was about to hijack @madrassoup‘s post, but then I realized I should just make a new one…

I think it says a lot about the way this country operates that the only time in the past near-century that we’ve had a straight-up leftist in the White House (I don’t really know how to categorize Wilson) is during a period of national and international disaster, and it was bordering on a democratic version of President-for-life. The New Deal simply would not have lasted beyond a few terms if there was any truly viable opposition – which there couldn’t be, because FDR won four terms during the Great Depression and died during World War II, and there just weren’t opportunities for reactionaries and conservatives to really stem those policies for a couple more decades. All the Democrats that followed as POTUS have been profoundly limited in their liberalism. FDR didn’t want Truman as VP because he was quite centrist, but he was also chosen by the party for that reason; JFK didn’t have a whole lot of policy practice, and won not because of his positions but the overall aura. Then there are the southerners, who are perceived as ‘moderate’ by default: LBJ relentlessly positioned himself as conservative and didn’t expose his liberalism until he was actually in the White House; Carter’s leftist leanings were primarily directed internationally; Bill Clinton of course was far and away the most centrist post-war Democrat nominated for president. Obama, like LBJ, turned out far more progressive in office than as a candidate. FDR, Carter, and Obama all were elected in following times of immense national distress; Truman and LBJ both came in due to the death of the sitting president; Clinton only won because the conservative vote was split.

Progressivism only gets to the point of national impact when the national situation is utter shit. Meanwhile, reactionaries are perceived and treated as moderate, even against all possible evidence. The least reactionary Republican president post-WWII was probably Bush #1, and he came in as VP and was ousted by a conservative split. Somehow, our society is primed for conservativism, so reactionaries come across as… conservative, not regressive.

Ultimately, I think this is because the U.S. is fundamentally far more libertarian than it will ever be liberal. That’s how it was created – by people who didn’t want to pay taxes but also relied on free labor, by people buying ‘freedom’ through genocidal expansion and chattel slavery. That’s the DNA. When liberals and progressives talk about the promise within the founding of the country, that is in fact revisionist interpretation – appealing to the best possible angels, rather than the hard fact of who the founders were and what they envisioned. Progressiveness as a political function in the U.S. is by nature revisionist, and visionary.

Add to which, progressives and liberals as organized bodies alike tend towards the painfully complacent as soon as someone on their side is in power. When was the last time you saw the DNC really putting out for a non-POTUS race during a non-POTUS year? When was the last time the left has engaged in non-stop local mobilization to legislatively change society from the bottom up, the way that the right has? It doesn’t, ever – it unfailingly relies on the labor of oppressed groups who have to fight back against both the oppression and indifference, and then takes that up as a catalyst. The many civil rights movements that have defined ‘the Left’ are not leftist movements, or even progressive, if you think of those categories as political divisions; they are the work of the groups themselves who lack rights. The rest of the left is the indifferent liberal described by MLK, that is only occasionally galvanized to take action, and typically only in limited/incomplete terms (e.g. same-sex marriage, yay! workplace protections for queer people, eh; abortion is still legal, access is frequently non-existent; we have a Black POTUS, but whoops, you’ve got a really great chance of being shot by the police for breathing while Black).

Really, we’ve never had a meaty leftist agenda except during honest-to-God national catastrophes. Emancipation ultimately took civil war; labor victories took children working in slaughterhouses to get started and an unprecedented (and sadly never really recreated) socialist movement to become law; the most basic of social services took the Great Depression; the Civil Rights legislative victories of the ‘60s took the televising of Jim Crow and was enabled in large part by the lingering trauma of a president’s assassination. And there hasn’t been any *new* leftist agenda since the Great Society, only efforts to regain lost ground (even the ACA was only trying to redress losses due to deregulation and whatnot).

A lot of this obviously has to do with our version of capitalism – it’s unavoidable when, again, the basis for the country’s existence is chattel slavery. Neoconservativism and neoliberalism, both of which are expressly capitalist undertakings, have dominated policy for decades; since this type of capitalism is fundamentally anti-society, progressivism has no recourse but to support the lesser of two evils lest the greater evil never be undone. When the Left becomes a place for moderates, everything inches towards the right because the only other options for the progressives (third party, protest voting) are inhumane, putting the most vulnerable of society at even greater risk. 

So we’re stuck. Is progressivism even possible as a national principle? We can’t fight against moderacy unless most people can be convinced to fight towards progressivism every day; indifference and regression, the friends of reactionaries, don’t require any effort.
